Designer Oatmeal?


Who says you cant dress up an ugly duckling? I was from the school that oat meal was meant for horses and should stay that way, until I decided to use my imagination. I should say the ugly duckling looks pretty. All of you who staunchly believe that you wont ever touch oatmeal, try this option with an open mind and see how you feel.

After having resisted oatmeal for 7 years, this is the first time that I have been regularly having oatmeal for breakfast.

Water - 1 cup
Quaker Oats -1/2 cup
Raisins - 1 tbsp
Milk - 1/3 cup
Brown Sugar - 1 tsp
Saffron - 2 strands
Pistachio - 1 tsp chopped


  • Bring water to a boil.
  • Add the oats and raisins to boiling water.
  • Cook the oats on medium low (takes 3 to 4 minutes)
  • Now stir in the milk and brown sugar
  • Crush saffron between your fingers and add that to the oatmeal as well.
  • Let the saffron infuse into the oatmeal
  • Garnish with pistachio and serve.

The other option is to add a dash of cardamom. Try this and I hope we have more oatmeal converts :)

This designer Oatmeal goes to Mansi who is hosting WBB, short for Weekend Breakfast Blogging, an event started by Nandita of Saffron Trail. The theme for this edition is Balanced Breakfast.
